My daughter and I brought a bug home from Mandeville, LA to live in our terrarium. It has molted and grown larger.
This is an adult Florida Predatory Stink Bug, Euthyrhunchus floridanus, a beneficial species that is sometimes called a Halloween Bug because of the colors and markings. We just posted an image of immature Florida Predatory Stink Bug nymphs.
Oh wow that’s so cool! I really appreciate the swift reply. Now I can research how to take care of our little Halloween friend. I hope I can find some more. I wouldn’t mind a little colony in my terrarium. Thank you so much!!
